iOS 11.3.1 Electra Jailbreak Tool Could Possibly Be Untethered According To Tim Michaud
A recently discovered ‘launchd’ bug has been considered to theoretically lead for an untethered iOS 11.3.1 Electra jailbreak tool. This theory came from Tim Michaud a “Security Nerd” coming from Texas.
This piece of information came from a tweet which was picked up and shared online featuring a poster wherein Michaud stated that the untethered iOS 11.3.1 Electra jailbreak tool must be “straightforward.” But then, what the post doesn’t show is that Michaud then qualified that statement by ratifying that he’s not an exploit developer and that the whole procedure “might not be very straightforward”.
Seeing that, it appears that this lies somewhere in the middle. It is also worth mentioning that @nullriver who’s one of the esteemed developers involved in the formation of Electra jailbreak has replied to the subject matter confirming that the CoolStar team is already aware of the upcoming launchd bug. But despite that, they don’t know a huge deal about it as of this moment. With that, the team can’t comment on the probability of carrying an untethered experience to iOS 11.3.1 devices based on its assimilation.
Moreover, Michaud also suggested that he believes that the said bug would “allow re-jailbreaking at boot”, which is the core of having an untethered experience. Meanwhile, @nullriver has also taken to the said online thread to propose that it’s a “possibility” that Electra jailbreak could benefit from this. But then, the developer further added that the original assumption was on a similar bug that’s being used up by the Evasi0n jailbreak which was capable “to do extensive kernel patching during their jailbreak.” Aside from that he also suggesting that extra_list doesn’t deliver the dependability levels necessary to come as an untethered package.
With these, it appears that having an untethered iOS 11.3.1 Electra jailbreak tool is still unsure. What the jailbreak community can expect right now is that the iOS 11.3.1 jailbreak has the ability to jailbreak iOS devices running on 11.3.1 version. In case anything solid develops regarding this matter will surely keep you updates, so always stay tuned.
